A Seattle design review board will give its recommendations to Triad Capital Partners next week on plans for 49 apartments at 1728 Summit Ave. on Capitol Hill, south of East Howell Street.
The public meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 9 in Seattle University's Admissions and Alumni Building at 901 12th Ave.
Triad wants to build a seven-story complex with small “economy-style” studios for young adults. No parking is planned, but the design includes storage for 29 bicycles.
The architect is grouparchitect, and the landscape architect is Thomas Rengstorf and Associates.
It would have a secure lobby, storage lockers, a second-story courtyard and a large rooftop deck.
The 5,000-square-foot lot has no alley access and is flanked by other apartment buildings. Setbacks are planned for the south and east sides of the building to separate it from the neighbors.
Exterior materials will include metal siding, gray and copper-red cement panel siding, and stone veneer tiles, according to plans filed with the city.
Triad also is developing three all-studio projects in the University District: 102 units at 4123 12th Ave. N.E., 105 units at 4106 12th Ave. N.E., and 75 units at 4029 Seventh Ave. N.E.
